    10 Things I Hate About You 1999

    ★★★★ Rewatched 01 Feb, 2016

    This film is just amazingly charming and really comfy to watch. It's also one of the most 90's movies I've ever seen in its look, tone, and style. My favuorite Shakespeare adaptation and an absolutely essential part of the high canon of teen RomComs.

    Predictable and shallow garbage, but at least it's sexy garbage and in spite of its shallowness it still manages to make a point about sexual morality.

    This shit is weak, there's no way around it. The Crime Epic genre is so packed with great films that even decent ones feel shoddy in comparison, but Black Mass is mediocre at best, and thus comes across as a massive bore, especially since it's heavily invoking both The Departed and the Godfather-trilogy, and reminding the viewer of similar but vastly superior films is never a good idea.

    The story of Whitey Bulger is pretty great and could make for…

    This was the movie that killed my interest in the superhero fad. I didn't really remember the source of my antipathy against it but after booting it up from Netflix it came back to me. It's the dialogue, the dialogue is absolutely terrible. Overburdened with massive amounts of clunky exposition, chock-full of "witty" "quips" from everyone, and constantly treating the audience as if we are really slow in the head. Character actions, plot turns, and even visual gags are constantly…

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Jan, 2016

    This film has a great message about how scary the fucking sweater-clad sociopath visionaries who run behemoth tech companies are and how we should have them all rounded up and shot. It's also a pretty good sci-fi/horror/thriller.

    This movie is awful.

    Half a star for soaked Connie Britton in a tight sweater, half a star for Walton Goggins doing his thing.

    It's New Year's Day. I'm Swedish. Rowena is still best girl. Brian de Bois-Guilbert did nothing wrong.
